GRIERSON, Edward. A Crime of One's Own : A Novel. London : Chatto & Windus,1967. First Edition. Pp (6),7-[222],(2). 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "With the TV serialisation of The Massngham Affair Edward Grierson completed a hat trick of successes in crime writing which had begun with his Book Society Choice, Reputation for a Song, and continued with his Award-winning The Second Man, A Crime of One's Own should add to the number. Donald, a young, romantic-minded bookseller and Bond addict, becomes gradually convinced that a spy ring is operating in his lending library, and sets out in the teeth of his fiancée's objections to unravei wnat is going on. The result of this Do-it-yourself detection is surprising and at times macabre: a warning to the curious, told with wit and irony and infinite gusto. Whether in the atmosphere of a provincial bookshop at a Literary Lunch, or ina courtroom, Mr. Grierson is always at home as he takes his readers along with him towards the spine-chilling climax." (from the d, designed by Ionicus). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. A lovely copy. 150.00
